TT Mediator

My son and I built this CLC stitch and glue Eastport Pram to serve as our dinghy for our Passport sailboat. We wanted something that was light weight, easy to use, and not a typical inflatable.

We usually just tow her when under sail but for overnight passages we’ll hoist her on deck using a spinnaker halyard and lash her to the foredeck. We use a 5hp propane outboard or just oars for short hops to shore.

The little boat turns heads no doubt and is a perfect tender.
